Trent is a commercial artist with a lot of problems with the conflict between his sense of artistic integrity and what he has to do for his clients. One day, he confides his troubles to a young nun working at a youth center. What he doesn't know is that she has been deciding that she doesn't want to be a nun anymore. He's black, she's white. It's not a problem to either of them, but Trent's family feels otherwise, especially after the two of them get married.
